You can edit certain parts of a survey after you send it out. If the survey doesn't have any responses, you can fully edit the survey.
If the survey is live, meaning it already has responses, editing options are limited. You're able to:
Changes you make to the survey design go live as soon as you save them. The survey link doesn't change, so you don't need to send out a new link or inform anyone the survey has been edited.
Editing is limited after you collect responses since significant changes to the survey design affect your ability to properly analyze results. You can't delete an answer choice if the question has any responses. You can instead hide the answer choice OR delete the question entirely (including any of its responses) and re-add the question.If you need to make edits to the survey that aren't possible because of this limitation, you have a couple options:
The SurveyMonkey mobile app is great for making small edits to your survey on the go, like fixing typos or adding new questions. However, once you've collected responses to your survey, we suggest making edits on our website instead. For example, deleting an answer choice in the app will permanently remove its responses from the survey, so use caution.
